Hornacek: Porzingis Can Be Top-5 Player in NBA


Jeff Hornacek once played alongside one of the best forwards ever in two-time MVP Karl Malone.

“His ceiling -– wow,” Hornacek said after his introductory news conference when asked about Porzingis’ potential. “I don’t want to put pressure on the kid, but let’s face it: At that size and his skills and his abilities — why can’t he be a top-five player in this league?”
